St. Jude Auction

My little town is famous for its contributions to St. Jude. There have been lots of children here who have benefited from St. Jude. This weekend they are having an auction with lots of awesome stuff to buy a chance on. I have already bought my $100 ticket for the grand prize of a Denali worth 49,000. Today I bought more chances on more stuff.

  • Toro zero turn mower
  • $1000 shopping spree from Dillard's
  • Club car
  • $500 Best Buy gift card
  • 1 year golf membership
  • $1500 lawncare/irrigation/landscape
  • Nordic Track Elliptical
  • 4 wheeler Arctic Cat

For a total of $165 I have bought chances on all these things. I'm probably not finished yet. St. Jude is my favorite charity. Last year they raised nearly $700,000, but there was a very sick little boy last year. He didn't make it, but there are others who need help from here.
